With Spain one of the 'big five,' Chanel has always had a guaranteed place in the final, alongside the likes of France, Germany and Italy and the UK's Sam Ryder. and fans seem to be pleased with the fact that the Eurovision final running order has her in 10th place.

Chanel, full name Chanel Terrero Martínez, is 30 and came very close to landing the role of Maria in Steven Speilberg's big money adaptation of classic musical West Side Story. Chanel has a long career on stage, with performances in the likes of productions of Mamma Mia and Flashdance.

She is also no stranger to working with music icons, having danced for Shakira, as well as being a backing singer in a video by former X Factor star Ruth Lorenzo. Chanel's choreographer is also a fan of working with big stars, having previously collaborated with artists like Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears and Black Pink.

Giving fans a snapshot of her rehearsals for Saturday's Eurovision, Chanel captioned the behind the scenes video: " Eurovision is this Saturday! My palms are sweating because I’m so nervous. Vote for SPAIN."
